Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Jerry: the sweet notes

I refer to the sweet notes as those beautiful melodic notes that really only Jerry could hit, hard to describe but they just put a smile on your face as soon as you hear em and they just sound so good...

example

http://youtube.com/watch?v=intjkWpxGGc (Jerrys first notes in the beginning of the jam @ 3:17-3:21)

another example:

in the Sugaree @ ~4:33-4:27

haha I hope other people will know what Im talking about, but anyway, post up more examples where Jerry hits those SWEEEET notes!

well if you are looking for hot Jerry from early post coma get yourself a copy of the Babatunde and His Drums of Passion show from 1987-02-15 Veteran's Memorial Auditorium. This "Benefit For World Music In Schools" is HOT!!!

Well I was at the 2nd show at the Stone which were his first live gigs straight from recovery and he was so fresh. My buddy taped it and my disc of the tape has "disappeared" and my tape is on its death bed so I thought Id check here.
I dont even remember what the full name of "the Stone" was so Im not sure if I can find those shows....Oh well, thanks for the tip! -V

Hey....The Keystone was in Palo Alto and I thought there was also one in Berkeley at one time but its hard to remember through all the fractals (ha)......Since my comment I found the dates of 10/4 and 10/5/86 at the Stone in S.F. on a site..... db.etree.org ....I havent figured out how to navigate through it yet and it appears Mr.Weir's efforts have cleared the site of anything downloadable but it looks to have some great shit otherwise...Thanks alot!!!

There was the Keystone Corner--a SF jazz club. I believe it was the first. Then the Keystone Berkeley, which was certainly open by '73, if not earlier. Keystone Palo Alto may have opened in '78--not sure--for sure shows in '79. The Stone in North beach was the final venue, it opened '79 or '80. Not sure if there was a connection between the Keystone Corner and the other three--but the other three were all operated by Bobby Corona and Freddie ??? (his last name escapes me). The Stone wasn't just a metal club. Lots of punk, new wave, rock as well. Many a great night at the Keystones for me--and not just JGB...

FYI:
Keystone Time Machine

Also, I heard not long ago that Bobby Corona was murdered in recent years... but I haven't been able to find any supporting news reports about it.

Bobby Corona is an investment Broker with a major firm in the South Bay. I am sad to say that his Father Robert "Big Bob" Corona took his own life in the parking lot of the Shoreline Concert Venue in perhaps the 3rd quarter of 2006. Big Bob was a great person and he gave many entertainers a chance to perform at "good" clubs.
